CaringSG Volunteer Appreciation Day 2023

CaringSG Volunteer Appreciation Day 2023

CaringSG held our first Volunteer Appreciation Day on 27 May 2023, Saturday, at the National Volunteer & Philanthropy Centre.

We welcomed 50 volunteers across various CaringSG Project 3i programmes to meet up and mingle with one another over lunch and games. 

After the Opening Address by Board Co-Chair Dr David Ang, volunteers enjoyed mini games which tested how well they knew each other, with lots of laughter and fun, and smiles all around.

Some volunteers and CaringSG staff who have not had the chance to meet in person, could finally meet face to face and bond over food and games. Others caught up with fellow volunteers they had not seen face to face for a long while and had a good long chat.

To show our gratitude for our volunteers’ contributions, we prepared appreciation videos showcasing their efforts and impact on caregivers and the community.

CaringSG Board Chair Dr Lim Hong Huay also gave a speech to thank volunteers, and she presented certificates and tokens of appreciation to our various groups of volunteers at CaringSG’s Volunteer Award & Appreciation Ceremony. 

We are immensely grateful to have the support of all our volunteers, and deeply cherish our time with you in our collective efforts to support special needs caregivers and their families.

The Heroic Spirit Of Caregivers – By Board Member Sylvia Lim

The Heroic Spirit of Caregivers – By Board Member Sylvia Lim

This message was contributed by Board Member Sylvia Lim

Dear CaringSG members,

“I think a hero is any person really intent on making this a better place for all people.” – Maya Angelou

In my eyes, this quote encapsulates the heroic spirit that caregivers embody every day. What they do may go unnoticed but takes incredible strength, resilience, and compassion.

CaringSG is set up with the overarching objective to support, enable and empower caregivers of special needs in our community. At times when these caregivers feel like no one else understands what they are going through, they can draw strength from this community, knowing that they are not alone in this journey. They can lean in for support, share resources, exchange ideas and uplift one another.

In the words of Helen Keller, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”

By coming together, we at CaringSG hope to pave the way towards a more inclusive community for the special needs and their caregivers. To continually encourage and inspire caregivers because they are so pivotal to making the world a better place for those who need care and whom they care for.
